Apex Legends Mobile Season 2 is coming to a close and players are gearing up for a brand new Season 3. Apex Legends Mobile Season 3 is titled Hyperbeat and includes a familiar face for the Apex PC players. Crypto, the hacker and encryption expert is joining the roster along with a number of new in-game items and a Kings Canyon update. The new season is expected to go live on 23rd August. Let’s look at what Apex Legends Mobile Season 3 has in store for players.
Crypto will join the Apex Legends Mobile roster
Crypto was first introduced in Apex Legends during Season 4 and will now be making his way to the mobile game. While not a very popular character in the PC version due to his vulnerability when using the drone, he’s bound to make a splash in Apex mobile thanks to perks. Here is a breakdown of Crypto’s abilities in Apex Mobile:
Passive: Neurolink – Enemies and traps detected by your surveillance Drone are marked for your squad within 30 meters range.
Tactical: Surveillance Drone – Deploy a pilotable drone to survey your surroundings. The drone detects enemy squads and battlefield hazards.
Ultimate: Drone EMP – Your Drone sets off an EMP blast that deals Shield damage, slows enemies, and disables traps.
Since mobile gaming mechanics are different from the PC controls for the game, the developers have given him a helping hand with some perks. Crypto’s drone will now automatically detect enemies. However, this does make its flight pattern more predictable. Here are all the perks you can unlock on him in Apex mobile:
Self Destruct – The drone self-destructs after three seconds, dealing damage and slowing down enemies within a small radius.
Hidden User – While in drone-view, Crypto becomes semi-transparent.
System Scan – Crypto’s drone can reveal an enemy’s HP and armor after three seconds of scanning
Shut Down – Crypto’s EMP deals damage to enemies. At low levels, it won’t kill them and will leave them with 1 HP.
Lag Bomb – The drone launches a deployable bomb.
Salvage Operation – Crypto can use loot items with his drone.
Battle Adaption – When you perform a finisher, it adds 100 points to Crypto’s Evo-Shield.
Restart – Alternatively, using a finisher can reset the drone’s HP while adding 30% EMP cooldown.
Interrogator – A successful finisher will reveal the location of the victim’s teammates on your map.
